A nice side-effect of such a black-out will be to send GLAM
institutions this message: "Don't use Wikipedia as a storage 
service, use your own websites and free licenses instead."

I would not spend time, energy and money on a service that
can block my contents without even warning and/or asking me.

Especially if I'm a public service, which is often the case
for GLAMs.
